Don’t let damaged or missing teeth cause you pain or make you feel insecure about your appearance – call Perrigo Dental Care at 205-545-8007 to learn what dental implants can do for you during a free consultation!
With the help of our professional team, Dr. Lucas Perrigo can place dental implants right here at our Birmingham, AL dentist office. Compared to other tooth replacement options, dental implants offer many advantages because they are:
- Strong: because they literally fuse to your jawbone, dental implants can provide up to 90 percent of the chewing power of your natural teeth
- Durable: with proper brushing, flossing, and regular dental cleanings from a professional, dental implants can last a lifetime
- Convincing: dental implants function, feel, and look just like the teeth they replace so you can enjoy a better quality of life and improved appearance
But that’s not all! Dental implants also replace your tooth roots, which helps to prevent jawbone deterioration. This not only keeps your jawbone healthier and stronger, but also helps maintain your youthful appearance and prevents a “sunken in” look!
Furthermore, dental implants do not require any preparation of your healthy surrounding teeth, so we won’t have to remove enamel from teeth that are in great shape just to make room for your replacement teeth.
Explore Our Dental Implant Services
Whether you’re in need of a full-mouth reconstruction or you want to replace a single tooth, we have dental implant options to suit your needs. We’ll listen intently to your goals and concerns to provide a truly patient-centered experience. So you can restore your smile in the most ideal way, we will explain all of your treatment options.
If you have one tooth that is causing you pain or is already missing, we can attach a custom dental crown to a single dental implant. We’ll make sure your new tooth blends in with the rest of your smile in terms of color, shape, size. We can also use dental implants to replace multiple teeth, so long as you need at least five teeth replaced.
Perhaps you have multiple adjacent missing teeth. If that is the case, we can fill the hole in your smile by attaching a dental bridge to the teeth on either side of the gap.
Even if you are missing all of your teeth in your upper or lower jaw or both, we can give you back your oral function and gorgeous grin with:
- Dental implant dentures
- Full arch tooth replacements attached to just six dental implants
- A Prettau® dental bridge from Tischler Dental Laboratory to replace a full arch of teeth
We also offer Zirconia dental implant options in addition to the typical titanium dental implants we offer. These are very tissue friendly and resistant to cracking.
Each treatment option has its various pros and cons. So you can make an informed decision, we will review the various advantages of each service with you. Our Prettau dental bridge, for example, comes with a five-year warranty, doesn’t gather plaque as easily as other options, and looks very convincing and natural.
